London-based synth-punk band KILL, THE ICON! have dropped the video for their latest single “Danny is a Hate Preacher”.
The song is taken from their debut EP ‘Your Anger Is Rational‘, released in June via Blaggers Records. Get it here.
Taking cues from the likes of dance-punk predecessors The Rapture and LCD Soundsystem, this kitschy punk anthem plays on the more serious themes of racism, whilst remaining surprisingly catchy. Injected with disco drums and glam-rock synths, KILL THE ICON! have crafted an anthem that is equal parts playful and cathartic.
“Danny Is A Hate Preacher” tells the story of generational hatred and generational trauma, and asks fundamental questions of our society: at what stage does a child learn to hate?
The accompanying music video is a pastiche of clips from American History X, the film that proved a template for the song.
Watch the clip below.
KILL, THE ICON! are: Nishant Joshi (bass, vocals), Florin Constantin Pascu (drums), Arun Dhanjal (drums) and Ian Flynn (synth).
